North Carolina Man Fights Off Attackers

posted on January 20, 2017

Durham, N.C., police say officers were sent to investigate after a man reported he’d sustained multiple gunshot wounds during a home invasion.

According to authorities, just after 10 a.m. Wednesday morning, two men burst into to a house in north Durham and immediately opened fire on the unidentified 28-year-old resident. He was able to retrieve his own gun and return fire, striking both men and prompting them to flee before they wounded him any further.

Police say they found the men, later identified as Kenneth Atwater, 24, and Saquawn Williams, 24, at a nearby convenience store, where they had stopped to call for help. Both men were hospitalized for their injuries, and have been charged with attempted first-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, felony breaking and entering, and felony conspiracy. The resident was also hospitalized, but is expected to survive. No motive has yet been established for the shooting.
